The Data is in Winter Oyster Survival in the Charles Cages is Exceptional

The official statistics are in from our Chief Scientist and the data looks good. The divers pulled up four cages on May 2.  All had survival above 94%.

MA - 94.27%

Near Side Cage #5 - 97.33%

Near Side Cage #7 - 98.69%

Far Side Cage #1 - 95.30%

The oysters outside of the cages faired less well as there was predation. We even caught one Green Crab in the act!

This weekend we will do a survey of Fort Point Channel.
